Do you really need to know more about this?!

OK, here’s some info ……

Jill Swarbrick-Banks and Jason Wilson are very excited to announce:

SWARB! It Suits Him Well – The Official UK Tribute Tour 2018 celebrating the music of England’s finest folk fiddler Dave Swarbrick.

Starring the sensational Jason Wilson Band (Toronto, Canada), Martin Carthy, John Kirkpatrick & Simon Swarbrick. (plus very special surprise guests at various ports of call)

Swarb didn’t want a funeral and his wishes were honoured, but… he didn’t say anything about a great big wake! So here it is, played by his dearest pals and – uniquely –  his fiddling maestro, protégé nephew.

This is an opportunity for all his friends and fans at last to raise a glass and party in his memory. We will be covering his whole extensive and matchless career;  the music will take you through the decades remembering the fun and the brilliance that was Swarb.

Bring a tissue…
